The worksheets are unique in that they come in various styles. Some are purely for grammar practice, some are colorful with several illustrations for young learners and some have sound files or are in PowerPoint presentation format.
  3. Collins Dictionary (Grammar Guide) – This section is more of a tutorial for educators teaching language arts (including grammar) than it is for teaching directly to students. A great way to brush up on some of your existing knowledge.

  9. Learn English Teens (British Council) – Practise and improve grammar by watching the Grammar Snack videos. The videos show the grammar being used in natural conversations. Then read an explanation of the grammar point and do the exercises to check that you can use the language correctly. It was originally designed for ESL students but could be applied to a regular classroom. There are two levels but a regular classroom would benefit from a mix of both.
  10. NoRedInk – Designed to help students learn and practice essential elements of English grammar and understand important elements of good writing. There’s material for just about every possible writing convention students might need help with. Beyond grammar practice, it allows teachers to create and assign writing prompts, thus usefully expanding assessment potential beyond grammar drills. The basic option is free but more resources require payment.

It features hundreds of activities organized into five separate tools – Proofreader, Grammar, Connect, Diagnostic and Lessons. All of the tools offer differentiation for ELL students. The site advertises that it is for grades 1-12 so some hunting for material will be necessary. Most resources are free but the premium option will give additional reporting features.
  12. Road to Grammar – Fairly simplistic website with lots of material listed in alphabetical order for students up to grade 12. Available to complete online or in PDF format. This website was orignally aimed at ELL students but could be used in a regular classroom as well.
